Follow Rainbows and Chase Moonbeams

Hello all. I wanted to share with you a card I made using Magnolia's Flying Tilda, which I colored with Copics and added a soft shine to the wings by painting on several colors of shimmery Smooch. I have had this Tilda for a while, and for some reason haven't gotten around to using this stamp until now. I'm so glad I did. I love the fairy wings!

I think you can tell that I stamped her on a separate sheet of cardstock, then colored and cut her out. I added her with 3D Dots for dimension. It is hard to see the lovely shimmer of the Smooch, so I took a closeup, but even so, I don't think it really shows the shimmer very well. You'll just have to take my word for it! : )

See what I mean? Oh well......The base card is made with Bobunny "dotted swiss" paper, and the gorgeous stitched paper (NOT stitched by me!) is from Prima's SEW cute stitched collection of dp. I cut it to make 2 triangles - just to add some character to the look. On top of that is a circle that I cut out of some Heidi Grace glitter paper - more subtle bling. I added some pink ribbon, flowers, and pearls from my stash. I colored the flowers with Copics to match Tilda's dress. See - that's just another reason that I love my Copics. Wish I had LOTS more!   Back to the card, I THINK that beautiful pink glittery butterfly is from K & Co. The sentiment is actually written on a clear peel off that was also in my stash. I'm not sure who made it, but I do love the thought. I adhered it to a piece of cardstock that I cut out, inked the edges, and popped up using 3D Dots again.
I am entering this in the following challenges:
